today is sunday. thursday will be thanksgiving day.
since they are usually days of religious reflection, also know as prayer, i have a special one for my readers and everyone else on the internet.
it's aimed at for the more cynical among you -- maybe even the more nihilistic.
lord, i have so much to be thankful for ...
i thank you for:
pain -- without it, i would've gone numb years ago.
hate -- it drove me this far, despite how many people said it would never happen.
love -- so we can have our hearts broken and our spirits shattered.
birth -- without it, we could never learn the good graces of death.
childhood -- so we could learn repression to help us with the rest of our lives.
television, movies and magazines -- so they can live our lives for us.
elementary school and high school -- it put us in our place and stripped away our identities.
college -- it 's the only way degenerates, lowlifes and idiots can buy respect and authority over the more talented and less fortunate social classes.
church -- so people too illerate to read the bible for themselves can be told what it says. also, they can be told there they will never ever be good enough.
perverts -- so we could have priests, teachers, roomates, various managers and endless failed relationships.
friends -- to help us lie to ourselves.
enemies -- to tell us who we really are.
youth -- to tell us how much we will need to learn.
adultdhood -- to remind us how little we truly know.
old age -- to forget all that we once knew.
family -- to making you fee like a failure every single day of every month and every year.
this is not mine. i found it in too much coffee man magazine. i tore out the page but didn't write the date of the publication on it. information about it can be found here.
